Umno Youth chief to always be political presentable and incredibly open with everyone

The race for the party top post in Umno Youth seems to be between Mukhriz Mahathir and Khairy Jamaluddin. But the irony is the Mukhriz-Khairy fight is claimed to be the a proxy battle as the latter’s father in law and Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is at odds over Mahathir’s negative political attack.

Ironically, it is not the proxy fight between Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Mahathir, but rather as the battle of the new vision of the leadership of the Umno Youth chief which is political presentable and incredibly open with everyone.

Although Khairy Jamaluddin has finally qualified after obtained the 39th nomination necessary from the Tangga Batu division but he still trails Mukhriz Mahathir in the number of nominations received so far.

In qualifying, Khairy, the son-in-law of Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi, thus creating the political scenario that the proxy battle between Mukhriz, the son of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, for the future party presidency post and influence in the party.
Seen earlier as an overwhelming favorite, Khairy appears now to be fighting an uphill battle against Mukhriz, who has emerged as a favorite because of his father's re-emergence in Umno.

Khairy was the initial favorite to win but Mukhriz became the first to qualify just two weeks after the 191 Umno Youth divisions began meeting earlier this month. Mukhriz, however still leads with 64 nominations.

More than anything, this perhaps exhibit to what regarded as the qualities that a Umno politician should always have on display. It seems increasingly to what the Umno Youth want their politicians to always be political presentable and at the same time to be incredibly open with everyone.

Although the candidates can deliver the speeches brilliantly, overt to empathize, performance seems like brain-shatteringly brilliant in addition to politics is an art of impossible, but with the current existing scenario, Mukhriz seems should be the winner.

Should he fail; in the light of this reality, it should be proven the tragedy of the abnormality of Umno Youth politics that draws theoretical interest for political analysis to conduct the cross-sectional political analysis.
